Transport Enhancement in Eclipse

Hi guys,

I am looking for an easy way to make enhancements to the transport creation and release available in the eclipse transport handler.

There is an implementation of CTS_REQUEST_CHECK with most of the methods implemented. Since SAP GUI is now used only rarely we would like to have the enhancement logic also available in the eclipse popup for selecting or creating a transport request.

I found badi BADI_ADT_REST_RFC_APPLICATION that is the enhancement spot for the web services for eclipse. And for that badi there is an implementation called TRANSPORT.

Additionally in the eclipse plugin browser I found '' and ''.

Ultimately we require to have some additional properties filled in on transport creation (thats the most important enhancement at the moment).

This interesting blog shows about creation and changing of new custom plugins, nowever I was wondering if there is an easier way to to this since I have no experience with plugin creation.

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Joery,

there is currently no extension point available to enhance the transport viewer in eclipse.

If you tell us a bit more about the things that you want to do in the extension we can think about providing these capabilities.

Hi Thomas,

Many thanks for the reply.

I tried to change the tag as you said but am getting an error when trying to save the changes (will try this again at a later time).

The requirement is to have the ability to force the user to enter some additional attributes for the transport. I will hereby try to illustrate with some screenshots.

In Eclipse the popup appears and when creating a new description it is only possible to set a description.

After this the request is created with the description as was provided in the popup.

When using the transaction SE10 using native SAP GUI in eclipse the behavior that is wished for and developers here are used to can be illustrated.

First again enter the description.

After the description the enhancement is triggered and a new popup is called. The content added in this popup will be added as additional attributes to the transport request. The description is just repeated and can still be changed, in fact the description will get some additional data added in front depending on the entries of the additional attributes.

The request is created and the additional attributes can be found on the request.

So in conclusion some enhancement or configurable part to enable the addition of extra attributes on the request would be nice.

I hope this clarifies things for you and if needed we can certainly get in touch about this topic.

Kind Regards,

One remark: Could you please change the related tag of your question to 'ABAP development'.

SAP Transportation Management has nothing to do with ABAP transports.
